"Napoleon at Waterloo" by Howard David Johnson
He was both the most hated and best loved man of his day. Legendary both for brilliant victories and agonizing defeats. Hero, Villain, Statesman, Traitor... Napoleon Bonaparte was all these things and more.
After French philosophers seeded revolution in America in the first place, the success of the American Revolution inspired the French Revolution and the subsequent Reign of Terror. Out of them came one of the greatest legends of all history - Napoleon Bonaparte
He was a great general who was also a dictator very fond of Ancient Rome. He emulated Julius Caesar on the battlefield and off and realized many of Caesar's ambitions.
Napoleon's time was the Zenith of the Era of the Gentleman's War, the heyday of the professional soldier. Professional Armies had not waged war against helpless civilians since the time of the Ancient Romans.
